CB, LCB - Column Bases. These non-standoff column bases, also called post bases, are used to anchor posts or columns in both wet and dry concrete applications. The bottom of the base plate is designed to be flush against the concrete.
Our most popular wood column bases include the Simpson CB66 and the Simpson CB44, however we offer a large variety of size options to handle your project’s specifications.
Choosing which finish your Simpson column base requires is based on geographic region and type of weather situations your structure is likely to endure. Check with your local building inspector if you have any question about code requirements.
